You can't ask to do something now about hijacking and put squatting under the rug to be dealt with later.
That would be a double standard. It is not acceptable.

I suggest you submit a new proposal that defines both hijacking and squatting, and what you suggest ARIN should do.

I totally disagree. Announcing other parties' numbering resources is not the only improper use.
Using other parties' numbering resources also is improper.
The allocation of numbering resources is so they remain unique. Regardless you announce the resource or not, using it is bad.

You are asking ARIN to do something about hijacking and to tolerate squatting.
Your own words :

This is not acceptable.
